Cash flow controversy

EBay sellers experience a "glut of goods" and AOL users get up in arms over Steve Case's big gift.

Topics: AOL,

Each week, Salon writers discuss the latest news in the world of technology.

This week: The popularity of eBay has bitten itself in the foot. A “glut of goods” has driven down the value of formerly lucrative garage-sale finds. Also, Steve Case gave an $8.3 million gift to his wife’s alma mater, but lots of AOL users are fuming. Hear why.

Technology reporters from Salon also appear weekly on “Beyond Computers,” a Public Radio International show, which airs on more than 200 stations around the country. The show explores the pervasive influence of technology on humanity — from family, beauty and art to law, politics and the environment. On the show, our writers give their opinionated takes on the biggest technology stories of the week.
